Flat Belly Food Guide

I don’t know about you, but I feel as if all of my fat goes directly to my tummy! It is so annoying…I know I have strong abs somewhere in there, but all the carbs I’m eating are covering them up! I have been doing some heavy research here trying to put together a list of food that will give me a flat stomach and allow my six-pack to shine through. 😉 This is what is on my next shopping list:

+Rasberries, strawberries and blueberries: packed with fiber, and keeps you full for longer. (Also contain Vitamin C= great skin)

+Kale: anti-inflammatory, reduces bloat and revs metabolism

+Oatmeal: maintains blood sugar levels so you don’t crash and binge

+Non-fat Greek Yogurt: higher in filling protein than regular yogurt and also contains good bacteria (probiotic) that reduces bad bacteria, responsible for belly bloating

+Almonds, nuts and nut butters: packed with healthy fats and reduce craving while building muscle (these are the best snacks!)

+Salmon: full of omega-3 fatty acids, which rev metabolism so your body burns more fat, faster

+Watermelon: full of water, flushes water from your system and reduces puffiness

+Garlic: reduces fat in the liver, detoxifies and lessons bloating (amazing)

+Avocado: loaded with healthy fats while giving you tons of energy

+Quinoa: whole grain, full of protein and fiber which keeps you fuller longer

Alright, time to head to Trader Joe’s…At the top of my list, it’s a tie between the berries and avocado.
